Godfrey & Kahn Fellowships Awarded to Law School Students in WisconsinSeptember 12, 2006
The law firm of Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Marquette University Law School to establish the Godfrey & Kahn Fellowship in Law. The Firm has a similar fellowship at the University of Wisconsin Law School. These full-tuition law fellowships are awarded annually to one first-year law student, with the selection designed to promote diversity within the law school student body.
Fellowship recipients are mutually determined by Godfrey & Kahn and the schools, and each recipient receives the scholarship for each of the three years he or she is enrolled in law school. In addition to the three-year scholarship, the fellowship provides each law student with mentoring by Godfrey & Kahn attorneys as well as employment as a summer associate at the Firm.
